slowing down

Praise God from whom all blessings flow for:

  • my unexpected 5 hour nap today. I don't think I could have needed it any more than I did- yikes! Today was an 8-5 day that I wasn't quite anticipating. 
  • my teachers putting up both of my tests this week as ONLINE OPEN-BOOK ASSESSMENTS!
  • the 2 classes with tests tomorrow are cancelled- a.k.a. I only have class from 9:30-12:20 a.k.a. I can finish a piece I've been working on a.k.a. sense of accomplishment that I haven't felt in a while.
  • oh and speaking of tests- I've taken 2 so far this year and I'm normally not a grade-sharer but no one really reads this so I'm going to go ahead and say that I'm really proud of myself because I (somehow) got a 105 on my SoWk test and a 92 on another test. I feel really good about that!
  • retreat this weekend, holla. Same retreat where I met my bestfriendboyfriend 2 years and 4 days ago so it's kind of a big part of my life and stuff. A few fun retreat pics posted below for no reason.
  • I've already finished my 50 hours for my TRTL scholarship somehow and it's just the beginning of October. LOLing about that.
  • Bobcats for Life event is coming together SO BEAUTIFULLY. I was expecting it to be a lot more stressful right now but it's great. We have a state rep, Pro-Life (and Catholic) OBGYN, coalition for life employee, PRC worker, post-abortive woman, annnnd Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty coming to speak. I'm stoked about all of it but lately I'm most stoked for TCADP because I am way undereducated about that issue and I'm getting more passionate about it lately, especially after reading this story about the friendship between a nun & death row inmate. Speaking of nuns: see fun & unnecessary retreat pics below.
  • Also, no big deal, but Bobcats for Life made $250 on Sunday from the bracelets & headbands we made! So stoked. And we still have a lot of bracelets left and a ton of materials. So cheap & adorbs.

I'm so excited to go to bed and wake up super energized from all my napping and semi-early bedtime! Annnnnd I just reread that last sentence and realized that I am 70 years old. Awesome!
